We're committed to research that makes a contribution to addressing some of the major challenges that face the UK and the world.

Our research has an impact beyond academia, and many of our researchers work in partnership with both local and global external organisations.

These include a range of arts and cultural providers, international NGOs and charitiesand community-based groups.

Our researchers have also worked closely with forensic scientists, the police and the law courts, artists and policymakers, and arts entrepreneurs from the global south.
